Terriers Open With A Win
Clutch hitting lifted the Terriers to a come-from-behind win over the Erie Outlaws to open the Pastime Great Lakes tournament in Erie, PA yesterday.
Trailing 3-0 in the bottom of the 4th, Jake Foden sparked the Terrier rally with a walk.
Zarley Cina followed with a single to right. Drew Dickerson cashed in Foden with an infield ground ball. Joe Tevlin then delivered a critical single to right, scoring the Terriers second run and putting the game within reach.
Lefty Robert Wilson took the ball in game one pitching 3 2/3 innings followed by Christian Lazar, coming off his big win against the powerhouse East Cobb Astros, who held off the Outlaws in advance of a Terriers offensive surge. Tyler Riehl closed the game.
Shane Clarke opened the bottom of the 5th with a single to centre. Foden knocked him in with a 2-out double off the fence in left. Cina cashed Foden with a double of his own, and Dickerson picked up his second RBI of the day with a single to centre.
Defense also played a role on the day.
Will Hotta made a spectacular, over the shoulder running catch on a deep drive to left to snuff out an early threat. Second baseman Dickerson chased down a flare in right then spun an off-balance throw to Grant Okawa at second to complete a double play that ended an Outlaw’s rally with 2 on and no one out in the 5th.
Foden finished the day with a double, an RBI, and 2 runs scored. Cina had 2 hits, including a double, 2 runs scored, and an RBI. Dickerson posted 2 RBIs. Tevlin rounded out the run production with a single and an RBI. Jacob Sims added two hits.
